Best Monk Farm Build XP

Hi guys, maybe some experienced Monks can help me here.
Searching for XP Farm build. Dont see forest of trees and dunno how updated the guides are

DE & Legs are not important, only XP counts

Actually i was considering the guide from DRUIN: MP10 TR + EP + Bells 1.0.8

Sound fast and fun. Change I would make is to Switch SoJ to Rare dmg ring after 5 stacks.

Would appreciate if some1 could give me Infos, which XP farm builds work best atm for Monk. maybe also Druin can give a answer, would be nice!

Best Regards

IMO, there is no one "best build" for farming as part of it comes down to gear/preference and the other comes down to solo vs group.

If group, it depends the other people you are running with and how you can help the team overall. IE if WD using COB or freeze wiz, some pull/buff helps them. If barbs, not sure what they need other than a buff. If other monks, staggering skills so no one monk has to do everything.

If solo, test it out and see what play style you enjoy that is fast for you. I prefer dual wield cookie cutter. Other monks I know prefer 2h and bells. Both have their pros and cons.

I just "TODAY" hit P100 with my 2nd Monk using this build through out the entire journey to P100.

It's great for sustain, great for fast kills and gives you tons of Mobility!

Solo play Druin's EP/Bell build and route seems to be the current best overall. I can't beat it running any other build/route that I have tried. (expect 150-200mil exp per hour)

Group play Act II run seems to be the best overall, though some Act I runs come close. You want a CoB WD, DonkeyBarb, CM Wiz, and Buff Monk for the Act II run. (expect >200mil exp per hour)

A lot of people are big on the crypt runs atm. I have yet to see "actual" exp videos though that prove it is as good as it "feels" from people. The single run exp is top notch, but finding the crypt slows it down...

I was ranging anywhere from 150-300 'ish per hour depending on group.

But ya, was hitting 200'ish pretty consistently per hour,

Here is another video of this build in Action,

My Twitch video...it's not that great I gotta adjust the resolution, but it's this build in action in A1 Crypt.

Someone could probably math-it-out, but some farming builds have a hard time or take a long time killing elites. The longer they take, the less advantageous it is to try and get stacks when you could have cleared half of FOM in the same amt of time.

There is probably some threshold ratio (avg FOM clear time: avg time to get stack), where it makes sense to get stacks vs. not get stacks in order to maximize your xp/h.

Hello OP, I just published my XP/hr guide which you can find here --
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/10307820683

I use TR-EP-Bells in MP10 Act1 clearing Decaying Crypt and Fields of Misery with 5 stacks.

Decaying Crypt is worth stacks automatically and 95% 3 stacks instead due to finding an elite.
Festering Woods is worth 2 stacks automatically.
This gives you 5 stacks quite easily.

I make ~220m xp/hr solo on average and have gotten up to 260m xp/hr for a single run.
